NPR called the first single “In The Night” “one of 2008’s great singles” and Spin.com said, ““Oh, My Darling's lucky thirteen tracks showcase Bulat's ... Read more in Amazon's Basia Bulat Store

Editorial Reviews

Recorded with Howard Bilerman at the mighty Hotel2Tango studio in Montreal, Quebec, nearly all the songs on Heart of My Own were written while on the road: traveling between cities, crossing the Canadian prairies, searching for a place to stop in the Nevada desert, trailing through the Smoky Mountains,standing in the bright dusk of a summer night in the Yukon.Perhaps most surprising was the strong influence her short time in theYukon had on this album. Basia spent five days and nights in Dawson City, where for the first time she experienced true silence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Canadian Chamber Chanteuse Creates Classic January 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD
In 2007, Canadian artist Basia Bulat released her debut album "Oh, My Darling" to warm acclaim, eventually landing on the shortlist for the 2008 Polaris Music Prize (apologies Caribou, but Basia deserved it more). Also in '08, Rough Trade finally released the album here in the States, where I immediately was drawn to her smoky, almost ethereal, vocals. Clocking in at just over thirty-eight minutes, "Oh, My Darling" weaves between simple acoustic folk jaunts like "Before I Knew" (recently featured in a Subaru advert), to country-tinged pop numbers like "December", all the way to full-band arrangements like "Snakes and Ladders", replete with surging piano riffs and a sublime string section.

Now, in early 2010, sophomore effort "Heart of My Own" comes along as a pitch perfect winter release. Interest in this record has been building for months now, ever since lead single "Gold Rush" was made available on Bulat's website last year. Since then, she's been steadily incorporating new tracks into her recent setlists. "Gold Rush" is a song that could only be conceived by Bulat, with gorgeous vocals that wisp into the melody, then swell with epic grandeur into the chorus, all while the light percussion and buoyant string section intently follow her lead.

"Heart of My Own" was composed almost entirely on the road, as over the past year Bulat embarked on a whirlwind tour across her homeland, Australia, Europe, and the United States. This seems to have influenced her work here, as there is an immediate intensity to certain songs not present on "Oh, My Darling", though the intimate feel of Bulat's throaty vocals anchors it all wonderfully. I find that most records are an ephemeral experience, because I can typically glean all the artist has to offer with but a handful of spins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and Artistic! February 23, 2010
By Whozis
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I love this new album from Basia Bulat. The music, to me, is fresh and artistic, as opposed to being commercial. I love her voice, although the vibrato turns some off, and occasionally I tire of it, as well. I like that she sings what is on her heart, and I also like the musical arrangements, that can differ greatly from song to song. Most favored: Gold Rush, Run, Walk You Down, If It Rains, and Heart of My Own. Least favored: Sparrow. The rest, I also like, and must say that they are finding a place in my heart. The more that I listen to them, the better that I like them.

This lady and her album have a folksy sound, picking up on different genres of music -- perhaps trying to showcase her versatility? Some are a bit bluesy, some are folksy, some have a tinge, maybe, of country music? This album is easy on the ears, and evokes many emotions.

i highly recommend it to those who like this style of music.Heart of My Own

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic as far as I'm Concerned. February 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD
My wife and I saw Basia open for Devotchka and were won over immediately with her amazing voice. This album is fantastic from start to finish. Great voice, great songwriting, great delivery. I wish more people had a chance to hear this album - I believe it would become a favorite for many. This music is good.

Ditto to my previous review of Basia Bulat's work. Older work but unique delivery of lyrics. Thanks to NPR for interviewing her recently.

Basia has a magical voice. She transports me with the feeling I get when I hear her voice. It is calming and uplifting at the same time.

I wasn't sure at first if I liked this as much as her first album, but now I like it even more. Very Good and I hope I can see her live at some point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great album by Basia Bulat. January 17, 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
This record isn't as listener friendly as Basia's first major release, but it's still an excellent album. I hope that she continues to publish music.
